The Thunderbolts program is founded on the belief that swimming offers an exciting and worthwhile experience in a young person's life. The values of competitive swimming go far beyond that of learning efficiency in the water. We hope to instill in all our swimmers, regardless of age and ability, the desire to strive for excellence, and the knowledge that they can achieve their maximum potential in all things they do.

Thunder Bay Thunderbolts Swim Club (TBT), as a member of Swim Ontario, seeks to foster the growth and development of young people through participation in age group and senior swimming. TBT provides an environment in which swimmers of any age or level may reach their fullest potential. This growth is designed to go beyond swimming and carry over into personal development. TBT offers the facilities and means to enable participants in the program to strive for and attain their own personal goals and to work together as a group to achieve team goals
